Lego Star Wars: kick against the bricks

LucasArts will be exhibiting the Wii Remote as a Light Sabre alongside its forthcoming Wii title Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, at the GameCity festival, due to be held between 24 and 28 October. Unfortunately, gamers will only be able to get in touch with their Jedi sides on one day: 26 October.

Although LucasArts didn't say if the game will be available to buy at the festival, the demo should at least gives gamers the chance to wield the Wii Remote as Light Sabre ahead of the previously announced Spring 2008 release date.

The game should also help the festival, which is being organised by Nottingham Trent University, fulfil its mantra of “exploring videogames in new ways”.
